Just bought myself a 52 plate ghia estate. The running of the cars seems fine, but its the little things you don't notice on a test drive. It's got a couple of leaks with the washer system. The first is - I think the washer fluid bottle has got a leak, it needs refilling every couple of days. I've had a look on the forum and it seems as though this has happened to a few others and it's hopefully any easy fix with some silicone gel, but any further comments would be appreciated.
The big problem is the rear washer. When I go to wash the rear window after a few seconds water appears to pour through the roof lining and down the grill on the inside passenger side. I had a quick look under torch light tonight and saw that the lining is damp on the underside. I'm not sure where the leak is coming from although I can see that there are a couple of pipes connected and this connection could be the culprit. Does anyone have any thoughts on this, I can't find anything on the forum, or other forums for that matter, with similar problems. Do the pipes perish easily and if so are they an easy fix? Like I say it's localised to the rear of the car only.
Of course I could not bother with cleaning my back window, but this weather and long journeys means visibility reduces fairly quickly, so i'd like to wash it every now and then.
